Stopped here on the way to see Gran Torino at the Sun, which, incidentally, is the best film I have seen in a long time. So many currents of generational change in America, racial tension, the rust belt, all delivered with so much black humour. Yim Yam was really fantastic, service was OK (it was busy though). I had a Laotian whitebait salad which was just delicious, crunchy with roasted peanuts, sour, full of mint and red onion. Yum Yum. Also a sour, clear fish soup full of vegies, fish, prawns and squid. The prawns and squid were great but I am not a fan of fish pieces in soup, I think they go too mealy, and the veg were just OK. It would have been excellent with some rice noodles in it but instead I had to order some steamed rice that was a bit long in the tooth. The broth itself however was exceptional. Will definitely be back. Yarraville was pumping and it was so nice to see so many people out on the street enjoying the warm night.
